Cats & Kittens
Cats require boosters every year to maintain immunity against all the major infectious diseases
that are found in the UK and that can be vaccinated against (Cat Flu viruses, Feline Enteritis (Panleucopaenia), Chlamydophilus and Feline Leukeaemia Virus).
At the time of their yearly vaccination, we will give your cat a health check. Regular checks will pick up any problems early, when they can be more easily treated.
Feline Panleucopaenia Virus (Feline enteritis)
Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV )
We recommend the MONTHLY application of Advocate Spot-on to control roundworms (& fleas) and also Droncit tablets or Milbemax tablets, at least every 6 MONTHS to control tapeworms
Roundworms ( Toxocara ansd Toxascaris )
Internal Parasites - Worms
We recommend the MONTHLY application of Advocate Spot–on to control fleas in cats.
To control juvenile stages, we recommend the use of Indorex spray in the house (but NOT on the pets) together with washing bedding, vacuuming etc
Frontline spot-on will help control fleas but has no action against worms.
We recommend monthly treatment with Advocate Spot–on to prevent mange and ear mites. If ear mites are already present we may also need to use some topical products.
We have a specific prevention package designed for pets travelling abroad. We have a number of products that can be used for treating/preventing tick infestation in cats.
NEUTERING (Females - Spaying, Males - Castration)
We recommend that all cats are neutered unless they are part of a breeding programme.
We recommend that all cats are Identichipped. Being able to identify a cat and
locate its owner quickly is vital for example when an unknown cat is brought
into the surgery by a member of the public after a Road Accident.
Identichipping is implanting an identitichip beneath the skin with a unique code to identify your cat. The details can be cross- referenced with a national database to allow you to be re- united with your dog if it is lost.
We recommend that you consider pet insurance cover.
